One of my first adventures on the Specialized Fatboy; a 20-mile circumnavigation of Block Island, RI. Absolutely convinced me that fat bikes were the door to a whole new world of riding.
GPS track of the course, including ferry trip.
From the ferry in New Shoreham, I rode across the island to the breachway at the Coast Guard station on the west side. From there, I’d stay right on the shore for the entire counter-clockwise trip.

Sand, cobbles, seaweed…were all passable terrain for the massive tires. Although certainly challenging in spots, nearly every bit was rideable.
There’s almost nowhere you can’t pedal a fat bike. Here in Rhode Island, miles of sandy coastline beckon the two wheeled explorer.
